Dark Chocolate Custard Pie With A Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust (Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free & Paleo)

I’ve been on a Christmas movie watching, cozy robe wearing, what-new-thing-can-I-bake today kick and I’m not mad at it.

Ever since I made a replica of Rachel’s Thanksgiving Trifle for Thanksgiving this year, I’ve been thinking about how to make a paleo custard that is satisfying but not full of refined sugar.

I loved the idea of a chocolate chip cookie pie crust and a dark chocolate custard filling for the ultimate treat! So I figured, why not try it? At the very least,  it had to be better than putting meat in a trifle right?!

Glazed Hanukkah Donuts with a Raspberry Chia Jam Drizzle (Grain, Gluten & Dairy Free)

Today marks the fourth day of Hanukkah! AND it’s Friday!

And while I  love that Hanukkah is 8 days of delicious fried food, my pants feel a bit differently about the whole situation. They really don’t love it so much. Nope not even a little bit. Seriously, I had to do that bend and stretch and kick my legs dance to get my jeans to button.


So while 8 days in a row of fried donuts seems like a bit much… I can’t NOT have donuts with jelly on Hanukkah!
